What can you use the app for?

Scrumblr.ca is an easy way for users to make notes and keep them posted online. Think of Scrumblr.ca as a giant whiteboard that users can collaborate with each other on virtually. Tasks can be viewed and assigned to others. This is effective in organizing action items for a team or project. Notes can be useful in many cases from assigning responsibilities and reminders to leaving a note for someone that they hope they have a great weekend. Each "white board" is hosted on a different Scrumblr.ca address. Others who have the link can then access the board and see what has been posted to it. Users can write on the post-it's, make them different colors, and even classify the post-its by putting a color "dot" on them. The dots could be used to assign tasks, classify items, or more.

What is the history and popularity of the app?

Scrumblr.ca is made with Node.js, socket.io, some CSS3, and jQuery. Aside from that, the site is relatively low-key and there is not much information about its origins or history available online. Scrumblr.ca has been spotlighted with good reviews on KillerStartUps.com, Teach Gen Now, Ziipa and now AppAppeal.

What are the differences to other apps?

Scrumblr.ca is different from other collaboration tools available online in that it is painfully simple and straight forward. It's graphical user interface is excellent and works very much like a whiteboard would in real life. Scrumblr.ca resembles many Mac OS applications in its clean appearance and excellent functionality. Contributors could also edit the whiteboard and maintain their anonymity which is unique for this kind of application.

Alternative Apps
How does the web app look and feel to use?

Scrumblr.ca is incredibly intuitive, simple and easy to use. However, if the user does have any questions, they will need to turn to a Google search and try to find a tutorial online as Scrumblr is completely bare bones and there isn't any help or user guide on the site itself. However, the site is pretty easy to use and there were no bugs or responsiveness issues identified while using the application. Additionally, Scrumblr.ca is completely advertisement free which is surprising for such a simple and free application.

How does the registration process work?

Users do not need to register in order to see what is on a board. Even board creators do not need to register. Users just need to assign a board name and they are ready to start posting and sharing information virtually! Simply type in the future, potential board name on the main page of Scrumblr.ca and click 'Go!' That's all there is to it.

What does it cost to use the application?

Scrumblr.ca is completely free to use.

Who would you recommend the application to?

Scrumblr.ca is recommended for those who need a way to collaborate online, or are looking for a virtual whiteboard. It's great for teams or individuals to keep their thoughts straight. However, it wouldn't be recommended for organizations who might be sharing proprietary information or content that they do not want to get out there. This is because Scrumblr.ca is not password protected, and if anyone can guess what the URL is, then they could also view or even edit the content on the board, regardless if they are "authorized" to or not.
